Target doesn’t have a sick leave policy. Whether you have the right to get unpaid or paid sick leave depends on your state, county, or city laws.
You can consult our table to find out more about sick leave laws in some states:
|Rhode Island||New York||North Carolina|
If the laws in your state or county don’t regulate paid sick leave, you can always rely on the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) if you need to take unpaid sick days.
The FMLA ensures eligible employees get unpaid sick leave if they:
- Have a serious health condition
- Are caring for a newborn or a newly adopted foster child
- Are caring for their spouse, parent, child, or a service veteran with a serious health condition
- Need time away from their job to address particular circumstances arising from the deployment of a service member or a member of the armed forces
Under the FMLA, you are eligible for unpaid sick leave if you:
- Are an employee at a Target location that has more than 50 employees within 75 miles
- Have worked for Target for at least 12 months
- Have worked 1,250 hours during those 12 months
You shouldn’t be forced to work when sick. If you plan on taking sick leave, you should notify your employer as soon as possible. You can call in sick at Target either by calling or emailing your office. Regardless of the option you choose, you should provide the following info:
- Reason for your absence
- Information on how long you won’t be showing up
- An emergency phone number in case your boss needs to contact you regarding a work-related issue
- Doctor’s note or any other document that proves your state
